All remaining government vaccine mandates will now end. The last workforce with a government vaccine mandate is health and disability workers. This will end on 11:59pm 26 September 2022. Until that time, the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021 remains in force. If you have questions on how this affects you or your workforce, please contact [email protected]
Some employers may still require workers to be vaccinated due to their responsibilities under health and safety legislation. Under those circumstances, employers should undertake a work health and safety risk assessment, ensuring that the assessment is based on current risk within the community.
